Life's circumstances indeed affect who we are, but we have choices, and it is from those decisions that we decide to remain where we are or change who we are. The irony is that staying where we are is sometimes as hard as changing.
Fighting for someone you feel is worthy can be as exhausting as letting go. Being alone is healing, but so is the company of others. Diverting from what is socially acceptable to be unique can influence others to act more like you.
No matter what you decide, you impact others and mold yourself. It's called life.
